Please do some research on your own.
You are a law graduate.
In the 19xx, there was a shortage of lawyers.
Shortage… meaning not enough.
You learn economics? Demand and supply curve?

One of the most humble and sensible post on this forum so far.
A few goons decided to say a $20-30k salary as an assoc is the norm and everyone thinks it’s normal…

PQE more relevant than age. unless you're asking a general question about societal standards and expectations of a 33 year old.

lmao troll

$4.6K is the salary of a 1-2PQE in a Chinatown firm. If you're 33 year old lawyer (i,e 6 PQE) and drawing $4.6k, I think you've got bigger issues than the low salary. If I'm a prospective client, i wouldn't even trust you to handle my case because you can't even make a rational assessment of how much salary you yourself are worth

I'm no fan of unrealistic salary expectations too, but the Big 4 scale is quite common knowledge. For mid tier firms (top 15 firms below the Big4), just apply a 20-25% discount on that and that should give you a realistic range.

Totally not true at all, let's not be misled by trolls who claim law salaries are high

Could be a mid career switcher who took the NUS GLB or SMU JD. The legal industry doesn't take into account past work experience in another industry and everyone will have to start at the same base assoc pay - such a decision may pay dividends if they become a successful equity partner
